I FINALLY opened another envelop that Alex gave me for Christmas. Inside this date envelope was a dinner for two. Ironically enough we had just gotten home from going to Outback Steakhouse with our two sets of parents. They met for the first time!
I went down to Ann Arbor to hang out with my best friend Lauren and see We The Kings in concert! This photo was taken in the alley next to the theater. Lauren and I have always just called it “graffiti alley”. I made a video about my day which you can watch here.
As a “just because” gift Alex bought me these two from etsy.com. They’re vintage book pages with my favorite animal pressed onto them. I love them so much and they’re going to be the first things I put in my office!
Over the weekend Alex and I decided we wanted to go on a date, but not just any kind of date. We’ve starting going on what we’ve entitled “Good Deed Dates” where instead of spending time or money on each other, we spend time together while doing good deeds for others. The first thing we did was attend an event called “Soup Per Bowl.” Attendees purchased handmade bowls that were then filled with soup.
Alex’s Spoken Word class was the talent for the event. He and his fellow classmates each presented a poem. The next item on the good deed date agenda was creating a care package for a friend who recently had foot surgery and has been feeling pretty down. He loves Batman so we themed the entire box around it, comic books included and everything.
We package everything up but couldn’t deliver it the same day because it just got too late.
